Sewing, Style & Creative Writing


Hello! I’m David and you’ve just landed on planet Design Closeup, a world where sewing and style rule, reality and fantasy collide, and I’m the puppet master of my own imagination.

My sewing odyssey started in 2012 and this blog is a close-up on all my projects, ideas, movie style icons, pop culture, fashion exhibitions and anything else that stimulates me emotionally and creatively. Oh, and I also enjoy writing short stories around anything I’m making courtesy of my overactive imagination!

I also love reading, music, partying and watching lots of movies from the 1920’s and 1930’s era. I don’t just make clothes for myself; I also have a few female friends and “muses” I occasionally like to sew for.


Why Design Closeup?

It seems that the last word of this iconic movie scene made a lasting impression on me…


“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up”

Are you ready to embrace the creative madness and join me in my world?
